The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities hosted an event in Mexico as part of its HACU on the Road visits. HACU has visited national and international campuses for over 10 years to speak to education and community leaders about important issues in higher education, and to highlight HACU’s programs and initiatives.
A HACU on the Road event was held on January 25 on the campus of Centro de Estudios Universitarios in Monterrey, Mexico. The event brought together approximately 50 higher education leaders from the surrounding areas. Opening remarks were given by Madeline Garcés, director of public relations at CEU, followed by a welcome from Carlos Antonio Coello Valadez, rector of CEU.
HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores gave a presentation that highlighted key programs and initiatives of the Association. Focus areas highlighted in the presentation included an overview of higher education in the U.S., challenges for Latinos, and supporting the success of Hispanic students.
HACU on the Road is an initiative designed to promote national and international dialogue about the state of Hispanic higher education among chancellors, presidents of colleges and universities, superintendents of Hispanic-Serving School Districts, corporate leaders, and other supporters of Hispanic higher education.
